The Association of District Councils has welcomed moves which will speed up and strengthen the review of local government in England and Wales.

The reassessment could mean plans to create huge all-powerful unitary counties in areas such as Derbyshire and Yorkshire's North Riding could be scrapped, it says.

The ADC opposes the creation of large-scale councils covering huge areas and populations, which it says cannot be considered as true 'local' government.

The ADC is also pleased to see encouragement for closer co-operation between districts and county councils in drawing up joint proposals to the LGC.

The ADC are to host a seminar on 18 October to discuss the policy change in detail.
